Kogi Judiciary offers to train police prosecutors

The Kogi Judiciary has offered to train prosecuting officers of its state police command on how to apply Information Communication Technology (ICT) to speed up prosecution.
Justice Nasir Ajanah, who made the offer on Thursday in Lokoja, when the new Commissioner of Police, Mr Wilson Inalegwu, paid him a courtesy visit, said that such knowledge was key to quick dispensation of justice.
“Educating prosecuting officers on using the ICT will broaden their capacity in the tackling of high level crimes.
“Criminals use electronics and computers in the commission of crimes; unless the prosecutors are kept abreast of what is going on, it is so easy for criminals to get away with their crimes.
“The judiciary has a computer centre and we are ready to partner with the police to train your officers,” he said.
On measures to ensure quick dispensation of justice, the Chief Judge said that the state judiciary would embark on a two-week special adjudication from March 20.
He said that within the period, criminal cases would be heard and judgments delivered instantly.
“It is a tasking assignment, but the judges are prepared to be stretched to achieve that feat,” he said.
Ajanah, however, decried the consistent transfer of police commissioners, and opined that the practice was inimical to the growth of the force.
Earlier in his remarks, Inalegwu, who assumed duty in Kogi on March 1, had described the judiciary as a principal stakeholder in the administration of justice.
He said that the police could not protect lives and property without the judiciary, noting that prosecuting officers must be abreast of effective methods of prosecution so as to play their role efficiently.
The police chief said that modern technology had thrown up challenges of new crimes, making it imperative for investigating police officers to be knowledgeable in the art of handling various applications of the computer so as to block gaps in their investigation.
“We are prepared to learn. We value our partnership. Together we can make our respective communities safer so that business and socio-political activities can thrive,” he said.
The new police commissioner assured the Chief Judge of maximum security for judges, and urged the judiciary to always alert the police anytime there was any trouble.
“We are prepared to beef up security whenever sensitive cases are being handled by the courts. Do not hesitate to call us,’’ Inalegwu said. (NAN)
